Toilet Paper Origami

Updated on July 11, 2017

How to decorate the end of the toilet paper roll.

I got bored one day and decided to come up with some new fancy folds for the hotels of the world. I really think hotel housekeeping needs to switch this up every day. This is a form of entertainment. Most people don't like to watch the same show over and over, so why give them the same toilet paper fold over and over. Besides it's boring to do the same thing repeatedly. You might as well have some fun with it.

It seems that this art form is a popular extra touch for maids cleaning houses as well. It makes people feel like they are on vacation.

If you are planning to use these at work, it's a good idea to leave one roll with the simple point fold in the bathroom. Judging by comments I've seen on the internet, while researching this topic, people tend to feel bad destroying the fancier origami. There's also a segment who strongly dislike other people touching their toilet paper before they use it.

This is a well known origami fold adapted for toilet paper. It's different from my heart.

Looks like a derivative work. I think he may have gotten more hits than me.

This one doesn't explain how to do the designs, but some are creative and reasonably self explanatory.
